How to get a Taxi in Tenerife
There are several ways to find a taxi in Tenerife. You can walk to the nearest taxi rank, hail a Tenerife taxi on the street or contact a local company such as Taxi Rivas. Ranks can be found everywhere, as there are many available in almost every town, resort, hotel or at the airports. At both Tenerife South Airport (TFS) and Tenerife North Airport (TFN) you will find taxi stands just outside the arrival terminals. Fortunately, there are usually lots of taxis lined up there and if there is a queue it tends to move quickly. You can also order a taxi at your hotel or apartment reception.
Tenerife’s taxis are all white. They display a green light on the roof or in the windscreen and have an official licence plate with the letters ‘SP’ on them (which stand for “servicio público”). Drivers use officially calibrated taximeters which run from the beginning until the end of the journey. Tenerife is divided into municipalities, and each has a certain number of taxis assigned to it. The taxis can pick passengers up only in their own municipality, but they can transfer them to any part of the island. If you wish to visit a different town, it is possible to negotiate a fixed price in advance for a day trip or excursion.
To know if a taxi is available, check for the green light on the roof. If it is on, that means that the taxi is empty and you can enter it and start the ride.
Benefits of Booking a Tenerife Transfer in advance

So book an airport transfer to Puerto de la Cruz, Santa Cruz de Tenerife or Adeje and see the best of Tenerife with a Welcome driver today.
Tenerife Taxi Tips
- Tips are not expected in Tenerife, but they are highly appreciated. If you liked the service that a driver provided, anything between 5% - 10% is more than enough.
- Very few taxi drivers have credit or debit card machines installed in their vehicles. That's why you should ensure that you always carry cash and change with you.
- It is a good idea to ask for an approximate price for your destination before entering the cab. The main taxi stands will give you an approximate price for the most popular destinations.

Safety and Complaints for Tenerife Taxis
Taxi drivers in Tenerife are reliable, polite and provide a high level of service at reasonable rates. However, some locals may still try to take advantage of unsuspected travellers by taking a longer route or not setting the taximeter on.

You can also head to the local police station to make a complaint.
